Question about KitchenAid KIRD861HSS Kitchen Hood

Open Question

Kird861VSS This is a retractable downdraft vent system. the top of the unit is a stainless steel assembly with a button in it and three "posts" that are designed to snap into the main unit. for some reason, the posts seem to short and do not attach to the spring clips below, so the top bar never attaches. have others seen this? what is the right solution?

Your drive motor arm is not making contact with either of the two limit switches at 6 and 12 positions. Your arm may be loose, gear stripped, broken bracket. Turn off the power at the breaker panel and remove the vent pipe cover box (4 nuts) see what is going on inside. Tellstar

SOURCE: Downdraft vent won't stay down. Push the button

check your bottom limit switch - i'm guessing its bad. the unit doesn't stop operating til it trips a (working) limit switch, if the switch is bad it'll cyle right past it and go back up until it hits the top limit switch (again).

How do I fix KitchenAid Retractable Downdraft Vent System?


No model number but they are pretty much all the same you have a failed micro switch behind each filter screen is one rarely see them go bad but filters have to be in place for unit to work, depending on model there are either two or three switches around the motor they are pretty aggravating to get to they are located in the panel below the cook top some models require the removal of the blower motor and housing and depending on the install still my not be able to remove the main panel if you can get past all of this to the switches don't waste time testing them just change all of them they get grease in them which won't allow the contacts to mate

Kenmore retractable vent keeps randonly going up and down , sometimes for 6-7 times before it will stop.How do we fix it?


I hope you have the $400 appliance insurance. I had the same problem in a new house purchase. First the downdraft wouldnt work, and then wouldnt stop.
It was a micro switch and motherboard issue. Took four visits by the (insurance paid for) techie to get and fit the right part. Good luck

Which is the best pop up down draft vent system? Do you have any reviews?


I wish I could offer some help but I am trying to solve the same question. There are almost NO reviews out there on the internet for any downdraft vents. There are also NO noise ratings on the fans (though ceiling fans all have ratings). It would seem that the taller the vent, the better positioned it is to draw off cooking fumes but other than that and the power of the motor (and perhaps ease of cleaning), I've no idea how to select a unit. HELP!
